Online English tuition with expert native-speaker trainers

Do you want to improve your Business English, but the demands of your job or busy lifestyle prevent you from visiting the UK for a full immersion course? Abbey Communication can offer you a convenient and highly effective alternative. By signing up to an online training course, you can benefit from our extensive experience in language training at a time and place that suits your schedule – and your budget.

We can help you improve your fluency, increase your vocabulary and prepare for important meetings, difficult negotiations, telephone calls, presentations and conference calls. You will increase your confidence and spontaneity, improve your listening skills and develop more fluency in social as well as business conversations.

We use virtual systems such as Skype or Zoom – or your company’s virtual meeting software – to run online English lessons at a time that’s convenient for you. You can book a series of lessons with us or, alternatively, just book the lessons when you need them.

All you need is a computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet. You can decide the frequency of the sessions according to your schedule (weekly, bi-weekly, fortnightly etc.) We can adapt to your English level and design a programme that fits your needs exactly.

If you’ve already completed an immersion course with Abbey Communication (or another English language provider), it’s also a perfect way to refresh your knowledge and skills and continue your personalised tuition without the disruption and expense of travelling abroad.

We also offer a convenient Online option for our world-class International Communication and Intercultural Competence training programmes, providing expert face-to-face tuition for individuals or groups. It’s an invaluable way to overcome communication challenges and improve the effectiveness of your international teams.

Training tailored to your needs

In addition to the face-to-face contact via Skype or another system, all our online programmes include:

Personalised lesson design: We will analyse your needs and design your personalised programme, combining our own unique materials with authentic sources (eg. TED talks, television or radio news, written articles and recorded conversations). You will get between-lesson activities to prepare you for your discussions with your trainer.

Lesson summary and language report: After each lesson you will receive a summary of the new language you have acquired during the session, as well as advice from your trainer about how to improve your communicative competence in English.

End of programme report: At the end of your programme we will give you a full report on the language you have learned and give our opinion of your CEFR level (Common European Framework).

How online training has helped one participant…

“I chose online training because I travel a lot and didn’t have the opportunity to go to Malmesbury for immersion training. As well as working in a senior position in the automotive logistics industry, I was studying for an MBA and wanted support to better understand native speakers of English.

So far, I have taken 20 ‘Skype’ lessons and have booked for a further number because it is really working. The language skills I have learnt so far from my online sessions are:

• Improved listening and understanding
• Language improvements in my written MBA papers
• More spontaneous in discussion
• More confident when presenting in English
• Improved communication style – clearer and more concise
• Able to deliver clear opinions in interesting intercultural and work-related discussions.”
